Economic Pulse

September 2019

The Bank of Ireland Economic Pulse stood at 76.2 in September 2019. The index, which combines the results of the Consumer and Business Pulses, was down 2.9 on last month and 16.5 lower than a year ago.

This month’s survey took place amid turbulent scenes in the UK. In the wake of Prime Minister Johnson’s decision to prorogue Parliament, the House of Commons and the House of Lords passed legislation aimed at preventing a no deal Brexit at the end of October. But with economic sentiment down again this month – albeit by less than in July and August – households and firms here look to have taken only limited comfort from this.

”It was a hat-trick for the Economic Pulse this month, with consumer and business sentiment ceding more ground.”
